  1. Apps with EXE install files only open to a black screen


    I have a secondhand Dell Latitude E6420 that I'm running windows on, I've had it for a few weeks and it generally works fine. I've tried to download three different apps, one was installed with a .msi file and it works perfectly fine, and the other two were both installed with .EXE files. Whenever I try opening the other apps they only open to a black screen, I get no error messages and I still have the taskbar at the bottom of my screen. I can switch to other apps and use my computer as normal, but it takes awhile for the app to close. I've tried reinstalling them both, and have restarted my computer multiple times but nothing seems to help.

    :)

    Exe file slow to open

    Yes

    ASRock p67 PRO3 B3. How can I take screen from BIOS?

    But now I tested one thing. Exe files from WinRar(SFX archive) open faster. When I click on SFX archive(exe) I must wait max 1 seconds.
    So the problem is only for application like installers.

    Exe file slow to open

    A SFX archive isn't going to open right away. The files have to be extracted first. When you are opening it in WinRar, it's not extracting the file, it's just reading it which is why it opens right away.
